Who is the best paying company in the tech industry? Google? Facebook? Microsoft?
All of those companies pay extremely well. All have landed in this list of top 25 best paying tech companies in 2017, according to Glassdoor, based on self-reported salary data from thousands of employees.
But, when factoring all the jobs across their whole companies, none of those three powerhouses landed at No. 1
